Here Are The 6 Pop Music Feuds We Couldn't Stop Talking About In 2015

Things got nasty between these pop stars.

This year seemed to be all about squad goals, friendship and girls' nights out, but let's face it, not everyone was getting along in 2015.

Sure, there was Drake and Meek Mill's epic beef, but there were also a few feuds in the pop music world that made headlines. From Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus to Naughty Boy and Zayn Malik, it wasn't all rainbows and butterflies when it came to several high-profile stars.

So, let's take a look back at the 6 of the most intense, most scandalous and most talked-about pop music feuds of this past year.

    Miley spoke out about what she thought of that supposed Taylor vs. Nicki argument over the VMA for Video of the Year, saying that Nicki's comments were "not too kind" and that she started a "pop star against pop star war." Well, Nicki did not seem to appreciate those remarks, and at the VMAs, she called Miley out after she accepted the award for Best Hip-Hop Video.

    "And now, back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,” she fired before famously adding, “Miley, what’s good?"

    The two have yet to settle their differences with Nicki further explaining that her remarks had a much deeper meaning, saying that if Miley wants to "have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us."

  2. Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry

    This one actually started back in September 2014 when Taylor indicated that her track "Bad Blood" was written with Katy Perry in mind after KP reportedly stole her backup dancers. Well, it continued into 2015, but what was so interesting about this feud is that neither one of them ever mentioned each other by name. There was speculation that Katy took a subtle dig at Taylor during her Super Bowl performance and later she got involved in that whole Taylor/Nicki Minaj misunderstanding. Many thought Taylor possibly responded to that by bringing out a dancing shark -- identical to left shark that became famous during Katy's Super Bowl performance -- while she performed "Bad Blood" during one of her tour stops. However, this feud took a turn when Taylor sat down with GQ magazine and said that she "never said anything that would point a finger in the specific direction of one specific person."

    These two had some serious drama this year. First, they were besties, releasing new music under the moniker "Zaughty," just five days after Zayn left One Direction. Zayn thanked his "best friend" at the Asian Awards, but then in May, they got in a little back-and-forth with Zayn's former member Louis Tomlinson, with Zayn asking the 1D member to stop making "bitchy comments" about his life, which prompted the boy-band star to respond, "How does it feel to be riding on the back of someone else’s career?" In June, a video of Zayn Malik covering Rae Sremmurd​’s “No Type” along with UK rapper MIC Righteous found its way online, which Zayn thought Naughty leaked. One month later, Zayn called Naughty out and told him to "stop pretending we're friends." Naughty thought it was a joke at first, but turns out, it was real, and these two are no longer friends.

  4. Iggy Azalea vs. Britney Spears

    Iggy Azalea wasn't too happy about the lack of chart performance of her single "Pretty Girls" with Britney Spears and blamed it on the lack of promo and TV appearances. Brit took to Twitter, sending what appeared to be a subtle dig at Iggy: "So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to… #YouWantAPieceOfMe." Britney's fans also defended the star, which prompted Iggy to respond saying that she doesn't need to "suck the womans a–hole 24/7 to be her friend" and that friends just sometimes have different opinions. Iggy assured fans that she and Brit were still "good friends" and that she loved their collaboration together.

  5. Skrillex vs. Deadmau5

    Back in August, the two exchanged words after Deadmau5 criticized Skrillex’s track "Where Are Ü Now" with Diplo and Justin Bieber. Skrillex responded, calling his former friend an "a–hole" and saying how Deadmau5’s record label suffers because of his negative attitude. Three months later, the feud was reignited with Skrillex saying he felt "sorry" for the artists signed to his mau5trap label. Deadmau5 defended himself, and Skrillex said he would always be there for his former friend, but things escalated once again when Deadmau5 posted a 7 minute video explaining why this feud started in the first place, and that is Justin Bieber. Deadmau5 called JB a "meat puppet" who "jumped into a sh-t-hot f–king scene," and hates that Skrillex "allowed himself to be a goddamn tool for someone else."

  6. Demi Lovato vs. Pink

    This feud ended almost as soon as it began. It all started when Pink took to social media to say the 2015 VMAs made her feel "embarrassed and sad" and besides Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pharrell, Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Tori Kelly, the other artists were "gross" and uninspiring. Demi's fans noticed that her name was not included in Pink's list and lashed out at the singer, who quickly took to Twitter to say that she has "no issue" with the "Confident" singer. Demi later released her own statement saying that the song she performed that night, "Cool For The Summer," may not "inspire" but her other songs, "Skyscraper" and "Warrior" have done "a pretty good job of helping people." Pink closed out this "feud" by reiterating the fact that she never said anything about Demi directly and that "everyone is so nasty and waiting for a fight."
